So is it a M3 Stuart, or a M2 Light?

 

Trailing idler wheel on the rear, so probably an M3.

Almost nobody operated the M2 either, the only place I can think of where M2's fought the Japanese in largerish quantity was the Philippines, whereas the M3 fought them for most of the war(if not all of the war, not 100% sure). Its more likely they'd get that many M3's rather than M2's.

I'm curious what they went with to fill the gap for the heavy line.

 

This is a thinly veiled bump.

 

There isn't a gap, it's just stretched out with the available sources WG has to work with.

I asked this in Dai's other thread, but I think i'll ask it here as I might get a response here from others that are also knowledgeable.

 

1.  What will the top speeds of the heavy tanks be like as you move up the tree?

 

2.  I love Howitzers.  Will any of the Japanese HT's have access to a Howitzer or really good HE Rounds?

 

3.  Will the HT's be similar to the Mediums in the gun depression department?  

 

4.  What will the mobility/agility/terrain passability of the HT's be like?

I'll answer from my based knowledge, but its reflective ingame may differ. If Daigensui could confirm then it'd be swell.

 

1. The heavy tanks have a fairly universal speed count. More mobility than the Maus, less than the IS-4.

2. The howitzers are the available armaments for the Iwakuro I and II, along with the O-I variants. Their cannons had HE available.

3. Yes, to an extent.

4. Poorly when in extreme terrain like swamps or marshes, but fairly  adequate elsewhere.

Fancy having 15 cm at Tier VI?

Game balance "department" job, not within my "jurisdiction".

thank you both for responding!  i would have replied with some of my very poor japanese, but i'm sure you would think I was brain-addled.  I understand it, can speak it (with a very heavy forrest gump like accent), but i can't read/write a lick.
